Here at Charlie Chalk, we are blessed to be a part of more weddings than we ever dreamed possible! But we are rarely present at those weddings since they take place all around the world. Recently, though, we have been at 2 weddings 2 weeks in a row! They were so much fun and so different that we thought it would be fun to share some photos.
First wedding: John & Anna
John and Anna married on a beautiful sunny September day on Labor Day Weekend at one of our favorite venues, which is a private home of some of our dear friends. Their home lies in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge and has sweeping views that are hard to beat. Their wedding was rustic and whimsical. We loved so much about this wedding! Anna's decision to name the tables after her favorite romantic movies was super fun!
Second wedding: KC & Kayla
KC and Kayla married on another beautiful sunny day at Willamette Valley Country Club. The wedding was elegant and fun! We LOVE providing decorations that will touch your heart and make an impression on your guests, so when Kayla decided to name the tables after Portland neighborhoods, we were thrilled to make them for her. The bride's parents kept their childhood neighborhoods to take home.
We feel so blessed to have been at both of these beautiful weddings. Thank you John & Anna and KC & Kayla for letting us be a part of your happily ever afters!
We love being a part of the special moments of your life. Which is why we love working with creative photographers. Which is why we LOVE working with Cortney Talbott Photography.
Cortney is in Scottsdale Arizona and she specializes in the first year of life. If you live in the area, we highly suggest you get in touch with her to schedule your photo session. You can visit her website here.
Just like us, you won't be disappointed.
We love weddings. Elegant traditional weddings. Romantic eclectic weddings. Outdoor weddings. Church weddings. Seaside weddings. And of course, rustic weddings. Doesn't everyone?
Wooden Initials for Weddings are always a hit! You can find them stained (top photo) or unfinished (bottom photo) here. The photo on the left is from our customer Christina's wedding. Thank you Christina! We love your photo!
Arrows, hearts, and your initials. Need we say more? These Arrow Heart Cake Toppers are available here.
Thank you Kevin and Talitha for sharing this photo from your amazing wedding at Anderson Lodge in Yacolt, WA. Rustic Love Bird Cake Toppers with your initials or your names and Rustic Wedding Cake Knife Sets personalized just for you.
We know first hand just how big of a task starting and running a family business can be.
Charlie Chalk is my family's business and we work together to help it continue to grow, and of course it has come with it's share of struggles, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
I wanted to reach out to some of the small, family run businesses that use Charlie Chalk
products in their own shops to hear their stories. First up is The Peach Cobbler Factory,
home to the world's best peach cobbler!
The Peach Cobbler Factory is a success story of the best kind. They started selling their
own Peach Cobbler recipe straight out of the Nashville Farmers Market, and soon the city
fell in love with their wonderful desserts. They quickly opened their first storefront shop in an
up and coming neighborhood in South Nashville called Woodbine, and have continued to be
loved by visitors daily. Their cobbler recipes and cinnamon rolls have gained the attention of
popular cooking shows including Food Porn, which shot an episode at the shop last month.
Summer time means warm weather, long nights, and time spent with friends and family
laughing into the night. Whether you like throwing gatherings for a few close friends, or you
prefer opening it to everyone around summer is the time to party.
Charlie Chalk has a great set of items to help you organize your next wine and cheese
night. Wine glass charms in varying shapes will allow your guests to set their wine glasses
down and relax knowing they'll be able to quickly find their respective glasses again. We
love all of the different shapes that can add character and fun to your event.
One of my favorite things at parties can be a great cheese plate, but it would be great to
have food labels that would tell me what cheese types are available. Check out these
adorable chalkboard cheese markers made with wood sourced from US trees
and NON TOXIC Chalkboard Vinyl that are perfect for teaching your guests about the
wonderful cheeses available for their snacking needs.
At Charlie Chalk we get to meet a lot of amazing people who are killing it in the small
business world. One of those people is Marilyn Roseburrough, the founder of a delicious
gluten free brand that is making waves in the Pacific Northwest called Kember’s Gluten
We wanted to highlight how Kember's GF uses some of our unique products in their
marketing to improve their brand and sell their products.
Products they use:
*Custom Chalkboard Business Signs
*Custom Chalkboard Name Tags
We love being able to play a part in our customer's most precious days. This week we were
asked to make a set of custom chalkboard food signs for a baby shower in Omaha,
Nebraska and were thrilled to accommodate!
The theme of the party was all the Spring - flowers, birds, butterflies and bees. The party
was a success and everyone loved the signs pointing them to each food item, card basket,
and gift table. The mom-to- be was gifted the set by her sister-in- law as a gift to the baby as
she grows. Because they're chalkboard signs they can be easily erased and used at an
upcoming shower, in the babies room, or for future birthday parties!
The new set of Nature Flower Chalkboard Signs is now available for purchase online
because we loved them so much we wanted to make them available to everyone. We love
seeing how you are using our products in your lives and celebrations! Keep sending us your
photos and stories! Planning a party with a different theme? Check out the entire line of
birthday chalkboard signs or email us to see if we can design something custom!
Everyone dreams of having a beautiful and well organized pantry, but sometimes that is
easier said than done. Most pantries are stocked with bags of rice, flour, sugar, and other
standard items. Today we are going to show you how easy it can be to overhaul your pantry
and make your house cleaner and more organized using our Charlie Chalk mason jar
First step, take your miscellaneous bags of different flours, sugars, rices, quinoa and more
and put them in some awesome mason jars with wide mouth tops. I grabbed a few different
sizes of jars depending on how much storage I needed for each item. You can purchase
plastic reusable wide mouth lids that are perfect for pantry items and keep your food safe
from the threat of bugs.
Before picture of some items I had in my pantry:
After I put the contents of ugly crumply bags or containers into beautiful clean mason jars I
put the chalkboard labels on top of the lids and labeled them accordingly.

We want to take a minute to feature one of our happy customers, and to say Happy
Birthday Averie! Averie’s mom wanted to do a safari themed birthday party so we designed
a line of signs with different animals that would be perfect for labeling all of the food items
available to guests. The safari themed chalkboard signs are available in our store here. And
of course we did a custom cake topper with her name, age, and favorite animal, the giraffe.
Thanks for sending in the photos Averie!
Averie’s mom took it a step further into cuteness by using the different animals and
matching theme with themed food. Our personal favorite is the cut up bananas in the
“monkey treats” bowl. Thanks for allowing the Charlie Chalk team to be a part of making your 3rd birthday party special Averie!
If you have a theme in mind for your little one’s big day but don’t see it in our store reach out
to us via email to see what we can do!
